The Agronomist

Last night I watched Jonathan Demme's The Agronomist, about Jean Dominique, a Haitian human rights activist and journalist. The documentary provided historical context, largely absent from the media I have seen, necessary to understand how Haiti ended up in such a desperate place before the recent earthquake. I wish that Dominique was still here to help his beloved country and to help us better understand what must be done from here.
